I know one man's meat is another man's prison. Let these MPs we elected allow us mourn Speaker @JacobOulanyah for at least 6 months. In this period of mourning there should be no campaigns for Speakership. Let Deputy Speaker @AnitahAmong lead Parliament in this mourning period.

Then, the Jocob Oulanya we travelled with to Garamba to meet Kony in the Peace talks of March 2007. He told Kony, that there was no Amnesty for him because he had called citizens of other countries, despite Otti having threatened to kill us! Such a brave man he has been.
